Burkitt lymphoma (BL) features translocations linking c-myc to the immunoglobulin heavy chain (IgH) locus. By inserting a c-myc gene under the control of the 3'IgH locus control region (LCR) into the mouse genome, we generated c-myc-3'LCR mice that develop clonal BL or diffuse anaplastic lymphoma. We show in the present study that while BL from c-myc-3'LCR… (More)
BACKGROUND This study was conducted to follow plasma concentrations of sFlt-1 and sKDR, two soluble forms of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptor in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery with extracorporeal circulation (ECC). METHODS Plasma samples were obtained before, during and after surgery in 15 patients… (More)
Several reports have demonstrated an important role of leukotriene B(4) (LTB(4)) in the immune system. We investigated whether leukemic blasts from acute myeloid leukemic (AML) and acute lymphoid leukemic (ALL) patients produced LTB(4), 12- and 15-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acids (12-HETE and 15-HETE) and whether these compounds affected blast proliferation… (More)
For q a power of a prime, consider the ring F q [T ]. Due to the many similarities between F q [T ] and the ring of integers Z, we can dene for F q [T ] objects that are analogous to elliptic curves, modular forms, and modular curves. In particular, for n an ideal in F q [T ], we can dene the modular curve X 0 (n), a complete smooth curve endowed with both… (More)
We present some partial results surrounding two conjectures of Schützenberger on evacuations of Young tableaux.
BACKGROUND Plasma concentrations of sFlt-1, the soluble form of the vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGF), markedly increase during coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery with extracorporeal circulation (ECC). We investigated if plasma sFlt-1 values might be related to the occurrence of surgical complications after CABG. METHODS Plasma… (More)
